NBC is developing a new take on the groundbreaking U.K. drama series Prime Suspect.
Hank Steinberg (Without a Trace) is on board to develop and write the pilot, which Peacock will shoot as a two-hour presentation.
The project is the first output from a multi-project pact sealed by NBC and ITV Studios. The deal includes two more pilot commitments over the next two years for ITV fare at NBC - including one blind scripted project and one blind non-scripted project.
The partnership was sealed by NBC Primetime Entertainment prexy Angela Bromstad, ITV Global Content managing director Lee Bartlett and U.S.-based ITV Studios CEO Paul Buccieri.
